A complimentary consultation is necessary before going through with this treatment as we need to get a better understanding of what your concerns are as well as confirm if any preconditioning is appropriate. The treatment is approximately 60 min depending on the size of the area. During the treatment we will do a thorough cleanse of the area, and go through with the peel- a very mild spicy sensation is to be expected, our technicians will be with you throughout the treatment to ensure you are comfortable. By the time the treatment is completed all sensation will be gone, a post procedure kit will be given to ensure proper aftercare is being used for best results.
